dc.description.abstract This is an eye opener regarding the importance of literacy, be it cultural or critical in a grade 6 classroom. It defines literacy, cultural literacy and critical literacy as well. It reveals their significance, how they are interrelated and how individuals critically learn about their culture. Moreover, the study briefly reflects on some cultural conflicts in the classroom and discusses the teacher’s, the administrator’s and the parent’s role in enhancing cultural awareness. As for the methodology, several interviews will be conducted with grade 6 teachers from different schools in Lebanon to learn more about their perspectives towards cultural literacy. The interviews focus on whether or not cultural awareness is enhanced during classroom practices, and if it is, how it is enhanced and what kind of practices, games or activities are implemented to help grade 6 students be more attentive to their cultural traditions, customs and values. The interviews will also focus on the parents' role in enhancing cultural literacy. Accordingly, a cultural awareness kit will be created. Grade 6 students will have the opportunity to learn about their culture through the novel activities, the various games and the enjoyable practices the kit contains. en_US
